I've placed original WebUI

I've placed original WebUI for Transmission:

 

https://www.voxel-firmware.com/Downloads/Voxel/R7800-Voxel-firmware/Tran...

 

You can install it instead of new UI (Transmission Web Control) from telnet:

1. Put downloaded transmission-web_2.94V-1_ipq806x.ipk to your router

2. Enter by telnet to your router.

3. Uninstall Transmission Web Control:
/bin/opkg remove transmission-web-control

4. Install original WebUI:

/bin/opkg install transmission-web_2.94V-1_ipq806x.ipk

 

This should restore original UI.

I have a little problem. With the latest firmware, minidlna doesn't work properly. DLNA can't play MP3 and video。

Voxel,Thank you for your reply!

I installed version FW v1.0.2.73sf, DLNA cannot play normally. I tried the latest version of the official v1.0.2.68, and had the same problem. Your latest version, v1.0.2.74sf, I haven't tested yet. I'll install and test it this weekend.

How do you check this? I usually test with my Samsung smart TV and from iPhone (VLC). 73SF was OK too.

BTW My version is too different vs stock...

Voxel ,Thanks!

Voxel ,Thanks!

I have been using bubbleupnp to play MP3 and MP4 from r7800 through DLNA. I use an Android phone and run bubbleupnp to play the video on the r7800 to my TV box. The previous version is very compatible.

Maybe I made a mistake and didn't doubt whether it was the problem of bubbleupnp software.

I'm sorry, after many tests, I found that it's the problem of bubbleupnp, which is not very compatible with the new version of minidlna library. I used to use bubbleupnp to play media between my various devices. It's very convenient. Now I have to think about a different program of playing software.

  Thanks !!!

Hello,

Hello,

I already installed last your firmware v1.0.2.76.1SF on my R7800. Till now everythink is working. Thank you very much for your greet job!

I have two questions:

1. Is it possible to have access to SSH server via WAN? It working only inside of LAN network.

How can I allow to remote control from outside to SSH?

2. Is it possible to make full backup of firmware with all settings and installed programms/applications?

On openwrt I saw that it is possbile to make copy of correct memory block - mtd. For TP-Link Archer C7 it is mtd6 - named "firmware".

Unfortunatelly R7800 firmware has 20 mtd's memory block (mtd0-mtd9). Which block should I backup? And how can I restore it?

Thank yuo.

Best Regards.
